GEMS World Academy - Dubai

Language Institute

The Academy's Language Institute provides the largest Mother Tongue language programme among all schools in the UAE.

Intercultural understanding involves recognising and reflecting on one’s own perspective, as well as the perspectives of others. In our own highly diverse international community, the learning of another language, and the preservation and understanding of one’s mother tongue is critical.

The Academy's Language Institute allows us to impart intercultural understanding and respect amongst our students from more than 90 nationalities. Multilingual opportunities advance critical thinking skills, allowing students to approach and understand the world as global citizens.
